A variety of transmission line structure designs may be used for the project. The structures may be a combination of single and double circuit towers and steel lattice and tubular steel towers.
Idaho Power follows all applicable safety codes and standards to ensure our systems operate safely and reliably. The National Electric Safety Code (NESC) is the industry–accepted safety standard which guides the design, installation, operation and maintenance of transmission lines and equipment.
If the federal and state agencies approve a transmission line route, Idaho Power will work with affected property owners to determine the exact line location and identify opportunities to reduce impacts to the property. Visit our Landowners section for more information.
The approximate proposed design standards are listed below.
|Tower footprint||40 by 40 feet|
|Span length (average)||1,100 to 1,200 feet|
|Ground clearance (average)||35 feet|
|Right of way width||250 feet|
